Default End of a great week!!

So we arrived back home on Monday evening from the Fall Southern. Tuesday afternoon I sat out on one of the food plot stands and a big buck came by trailing a doe. They both disappeared into the hemlocks. 20 minutes later she was back and walked the same track as before. I knew he was soon to follow. 5 minutes later (6:30 PM), here he comes head down trailing. He was broadside at 50 yards. I "bleated" him to a stop and let the bolt fly. Down goes Joe Frazier to my Ten Point crossbow with 100g Sevr TiII mechanical broadheads!! High and wide 7 point buck with a live weight of 200#. This was the 12th year in a row I was blessed to take a buck in archery season.

So we put a close on the end of another successful PA deer season. After that archery buck I filled two doe tags by the first week in November to close out my bow season. I saved one last doe tag for rifle season (I do every year because it's fun and easy peasy). Yesterday, 11/25, was our opening day of rifle. I sat on my Chuck Central platform where we've taken hundreds of woodchucks. 9:30 a big fat doe came out of the switchgrass at 200 yards. The suppressed 6.5 Creedmore with 3000 FPS 120g V-Max sizzled out and gave me that tell-tale "THUMP". She expired 20 yards from impact. And the people rejoiced and feasted on the lambs and the sloths and the carps and the fruit bats and the breakfast cereals...... She's at the processor being made into tasty treats. Feels like archery just opened a few days ago and now rifle is over for me. Time is certainly going by faster each year.

Virginia gun opened 11/18/23 and I didn’t go , left the following day to go to WV for their opener on the 20th . Got back to VA on the 22nd . But didn’t go out the first time in VA during gun season until the 24th . This little fellar succumbed to a Hornady 139 SST handload in a Mannlicher Schoenauer MC carbine in 7x57 with a nice old Leupold Vari XII 2-7x on top . Shot him at about 7:45 AM at 75ish yards he made about a forty yard death run and saw him roll as I was perched about thirtyfive feet off the ground in a tree .

Always vacuum packed. This doe will be backstraps and t-loins, trail bologna, hot dogs, maple breakfast sausage and regular country breakfast sausage.

All I kill get put into usable portions the same day . I cut the backstraps off and the fish out and they go in my freezer . Then everything else is cut off the bone and bagged for either stew meat or to be ground and made into burger or sausage . I also keep the heart if I didn’t get a projectile in it . The liver goes with the rest of the innards (out on the hill for the BuZards).
